The Sunday Escape: This Sunday the Pop Fugitives will be getting sporty. As most listeners know, Paul is the athletic sort, so this week he has been getting into playing tennis. Well, actually, that's not strictly true, he hasn't even been outdoors. He has in fact been playing Mario Tennis Aces - hopefully he won't exhaust himself before the show.
It's for the Nintendo Switch and apparently is the nearest thing to playing tennis in an arcade format, with the added bonus of being able to play as Yoshi.
They'll also be playing a whole heap of new music, including their pick for album of the week, an unexpectedly creepy tune, plus a look at what's in the box set. They will of course also be eating biscuits. (Sunday, 9:30am - 1pm)
Vintage Chart Toppers: This week on the show, a beautiful London river, a most tempting accordion and it's hello to Billy. Also, a special feature on the success of Woolworths sixpenny gramophone records.(Sunday, 8.30am-9am)
The end of the Second World War ushered in a long period of ideological confrontation between the former Soviet Union and the West. With global tensions again on the rise, we'll be tracing the history of this decades-long struggle for supremacy, marked by espionage, proxy wars and the ever-present fear of nuclear missiles. Cold War - Stories From the Big Freeze features the voices of those who lived through this dramatic period. This 15-part BBC series begins on Sunday evening at 6.45 on Radio 3.
On Monday's Money Talk we're joined by Nitin Dialdas, Chief Investment Officer at Mandarin Capital, to analyse the latest business headlines from over the weekend.

On Monday's Backchat, LGBT books in our libraries. Ten children books featuring same sex theme have been removed for the public libraries after campaign by anti-rights group. LCSD acknowledged that these books did not advocate homosexuality, but the removal from the shelf was a response "based on concerns by various readers". What do you think of the controversies? Should these children books be removed from public libraries? Is the removal of books considered as 'censorship'? Or should these books be read with parental guidance? How should children be taught with family values and homosexuality? Leave us a message, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us on 23388266. After 9.20, banning the use of mobile phones during jury trials.
